At times i smiled knowingly such as when she describes training their free hand (which wanders and likes to play with the other breast/ nipple) and how to encourage them away! She also highlights that it is common during the first few months of the first year for nursing to increase which made me relax as i was beginning to think that my son was "de-weaning" from solids at times! All in all i felt much more confident and happier with my decision after reading this book. I'm not sure how long I'll continue to BF for. I'd like my son to wean himself but if you're looking for some advice on breastfeeding toddlers or have concerns about it this book will assuage your fears.
The book is well written, sympathetic and informative.Read more ›
I nursed all four of my children as toddlers and delight in recommending this nurturing book. While long-term breastfeeding becomes more popular in the US, Europe and Canada, there is still some confusion and unease about the topic. This book provides a reassuring nod to all mothers who are breastfeeding their toddlers.
Filled with practical tips, real-life stories, quotes from experienced mothers and glorious photos, it is a joy to read.
Handy pointers about typical toddler-feeding issues such as that annoying twiddling, handling your child's verbal public request to nurse, dealing with critics, night-nursing and weaning.
If you currently are nursing your toddler, or if you are considering the journey, this book is worth owning. I have included a recommendation for it in my new book, Gentle Baby Care: Essential Tips for Raising Your Baby.
-- Elizabeth Pantley, author of The No-Cry Sleep Solution.
Toddler nursing is very much an 'underground behaviour' and I've yet to find a mother who is nursing a toddler to actively broadcast the fact. This book is really helpful at filling the gap that talking to other mothers in similar situations would naturally fill.
